Program Description:
The course emphasizes source, process, and outcome. While in Italy, students will collect images, postcards, sketch, including small three-dimensional studies, take notes, etc. These will then be used as source material for studio work upon return. The intention of the course is for each student to use the influence gained during study in Italy toward the furtherance of their own studio work. The studio area/medium used can be the studio student's area of focus (painting, sculpture, etc.) or an upper level section of drawing (340, 341 or 440) or any lower level of 3-D studies (including ART 131, 270, 220).
